I have a line on a 12 gauge from that year. I'm considering cutting the barrel down to make it a HD gun. It's got a polychoke on the end of it (which I'm not a fan of), and the price is very reasonable.

Before I do anything to it, am I cutting up something that should not be cut up? Thanks.

Also, in terms of replacing barrels, I know there are certain barrels that are not interchangeable with models with S/N less than 855,000. How can I tell if a barrel is compatible with this 1941 gun?

Thanks for all of your replies.

OK, Plan B. No longer considering cutting it down. I understand this will soon be a collectors item. The gun is in need of refinishing and bluing - but especially the furniture needs refinishing. If I refinish it and have it reblued will that significantly lower the collector value of it?

I received the gun today. I was led to believe that the furniture was in need of refinishing. I am not going to do a thing to this gun! Probably the best $299 I've ever spent.

Receiver and barrel serial numbers match (1941). Stock looks brand new; the butt plate doesn't fit it though (the butt plate is about 1/16" too small). The poly choke works very smoothly. The pump action is smooth, but tight. I'm going to put a new Ithaca Sunburst recoil pad on it
